Pigertons is a very stylish and contemporary holiday house on the 20 acre Hesdin Estate on the borders of Wiltshire and Somerset. 6 en suite bedrooms sleep 12, plus there’s room for 4 more guests at a small extra charge per person. All yours to play with are a fabulous 8m swim spa, an outdoor cinema, outdoor kitchen area with a barbecue, pizza oven and firepit, a humongous games room, and a rooftop terrace with glorious views over the fields.

Once you’re here, we suspect you’ll just want to stay put because there’s so much at Pigertons to keep you happy. Besides what’s at the house there are walks in the fields and woods of the estate; take your time, stop and stare, say hello to the alpacas, the goats and chickens who live here. You might even fancy a wander up the road to the village pub, or you could pile in the car and pootle down to Longleat Safari Park just a few miles away. Have a day out discovering the delights of Bath; it won’t take you long to get there at all and there’s so much to see, like the Roman Baths, the beautiful Bath Abbey, the Bath Skyline Walk and the Royal Crescent.

Go and browse the local towns and stop off for a bite to eat – Warminster and Westbury are closest, but if you like quirky you should go to Frome where there’s more in the way of vintage and you can find things that aren’t so run-of-the-mill. Then there's Glastonbury; go there and enjoy the New Age vibe, chill out at the Chalice Well, climb the Tor on the edge of town for the most incredible views. If you go to Bradford-On-Avon you can have a ride on a narrowboat on the Kennet & Avon canal, hire canoes or bikes, or have a stroll along the towpath to Avoncliff Aquaduct looking out for moorhens scooting and ducks dabbling as you go.

Maybe you’ve a thing for history – if so, you should definitely go to Stonehenge whilst you’re in this neck of the woods, or to see the stone circles at Avebury. Take a trip to Lacock Abbey or Stourhead House, or discover the gruesome past of Farleigh Hungerford Castle. If the great outdoors is calling you’ll find miles and miles of spectacular countryside to explore in the Cranborne Chase AONB; otherwise walk up to Bratton Camp and see one of Wiltshire’s White Horses carved into the chalk hillside, or see the views from Cley Hill.

Round off your day with a movie beneath the stars back at Pigertons and a sleepy chat on the roof terrace before you turn in. Don’t be surprised if you hear strange noises at night; it’s only the roar of those famous lions at Longleat. Come and stay, make Pigertons your big happy! Book today!

This property is on the same rural estate as Hesdin Hall
